Underground Parking?

Underground Parking Supporters

Supporters for a Pershing Square (L.A.) underground garage “dig in.” Sign above group reads: San Francisco has underground parking; so should we.

The only underground lots I can think of offhand are the ones at Civic Center and Union Square. We need more!

    Great find Courtney… there is also the always controversial underground garage in GGP… underneath the new Cal Academy.

    Interestingly it is easier to engineer seismically an underground structure as opposed to an above ground one. I got that from my uncle that founded a huge civil engineering company behind the Orange Curtain.
